A Connecticut woman commits suicide after trying to strangle her 8-year-old daughter. The woman’s body was discovered after the 8-year-old daughter she attempted to strangle regained consciousness and found her mother’s dead body in another room in their home.
Detectives believe that Ivanna Krekhtyak, 36, killed herself believing she had just killed her daughter but after she died, her daughter regained consciousness. Police says that after finding her mother dead, the little girl ran to a neighbor’s home, the neighbor then called police.
“All of the evidence at the scene is consistent with that,” Fairfield Police Lt. Robert Kalamaras says. “It’s such a shame. This was a tragic call.”
Kalamaras confirmed that the girl had strangulation marks on her neck as well as redness on her face as a result of the attack. The little girl was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where she continues to receive treatment. Kalamaras says the girl is “in stable condition”.
Krekhtyak’s husband, Vasyl Krekhtyak, died in 2015 at the age of 38 also by suicide. He killed himself “by neck compression,” according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Very strange indeed. Do let us in on your thoughts.
